Point of Interest Details

John Gregory, a well-known American sculptor, used the eight plaster bas-reliefs at Scripps to cast his famous marble reliefs, which now reside on the north façade of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. Each relief depicts a scene from one of Shakespeare’s plays. Made in the 1930s, the plaster pieces have undergone conservation since the spring of 2004. Restored works include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, and The Merchant of Venice.
